Excellent overall experience at the Avalon. Our room was spacious, including a living area, 2 flat-screen TVs and a giant washroom. The only slight problem with the room was that our shower door was off its hinge and could not close completely. The Avalon is also in the perfect location, close to many major attractions in the city like Times...

The Avalon is perfectly situated in Midtown very near Empire State Building. Staff are helpful and always friendly but the key is room size. We travelled with teenage daughters and stayed in the one room which due to size is comfy but very workable. Every time we visit NYC we stay at the Avalon and have recommended it to friends....

Just returned from my 3rd stay in the Avalon and it seems to get better each time. From the excellent customer service to the high level of security, the hotel cannot be faulted. With it's excellent location most tourist sites are within walking distance. It also provides strong wifi which is a major selling point for me.

I stayed at the Avalon hoping it could be the East Side business hotel to give me what I needed for my typical 2-night time-pressured stay in New York. I feel like I was a bit misled by all the five-star reviews here. I paid about $430 a night (plus lots of tax) which is unfortunately standard at busy times...

The location was great. Close to a couple of subway stations and a block and a half from the Empire State Building. The room was large for New York standards. We had 4 people in the room which turned out to be a suite. Plenty of room for 4 people.

Except for some problems with the A/C, this was a very nice stay. And they compensated for the A/C by moving me into one of their executive suites! This was the size of a large one bedroom apartment!

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
